Cirque du Soleil Luzia Spotlight: Mark Shaub and Kelly McDonald
We had the chance to chat with Artistic Director, Mark Shaub, and Adagio artist Kelly McDonald of the Cirque du Soleil’s LUZIA show arriving in Seattle on March 30th (get your tickets soon!).

Naka reopens as Adana: Curate your own 3-course tasting menu
We only dined at Naka once before it closed its doors in January. Maybe Seattle wasn’t ready for Naka’s fine dining kaiseki concept, offering 6, 10 and 15-course menu options.

The food, the dining experience, and the service are still as high quality as before—with a more approachable and affordable menu.  (more…)
